ok, no takers here is some info if anyone is interested let me know.

Rainbowfish Eggs For Sale

These are really only for hobbyists that have had experience in hatching and raising rainbowfish eggs. It’s not rocket science but it does take a little understanding to get it right, especially for the big rainbowfish, which lay small eggs and have fairly tiny fry. *** If you are interested in any of the eggs below I need 7-10 days notice so that I can make sure the fish are happy and producing lots of eggs. You’ll get 25 + eggs that have been carefully picked and then tested to make sure that all of the infertile eggs have been removed. You’ll put these into a shallow sandwich tray and incubate at 80 degrees for 7-10 days. Ask and I’ll send you the best way to tray hatch and raise these fish. For the smaller fish, the Pseudomugils, they lay much larger eggs and are easier to raise but take much longer to hatch – 14-20 days.
